As someone who supports natural health in all areas of her life, herbal supplements are also something I support greatly. It infuriates me a little that we’re told to consume prescription drugs and to avoid herbal supplements for interactions with those drugs. Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Anyway! This cold and flu season, try some of my favorite natural herbal supplements that come from foods, leaves, roots and flowers. They are nature’s gift to us for healing, wellness and to prevent those nasty colds, viruses and bacterial infections that thrive in cold temperatures. These herbal supplements can be bought online, or at any health food store.

Chaga mushrooms are the number one cancer fighting herbal supplements of all supplements and herbal medicines known to man. It is the king of medicinal mushrooms because it contains more anti-tumor compounds of any herb known to man. It is also the second highest food to cacao in antioxidant content, making it a wonderful food to add to your diet to keep away free radicals that cause illness. You can buy it in pill, powder or tea form. It is said to have a strong smokey taste, similar to coffee.
